Finish: Smooth, creamy finish
Ultimate Beverage Challenge 89 points - A deep and rich nose with aromas of dark caramel and tobacco leaf. It is powerful in the mouth with spice, cigar box and plenty of baking spices, and hints of campfire smoke. An intense tequila with a long finish.
The bouquet features wonderful aromas of caramel, cream, pastry dough and nutmeg with a background hint of honeyed peanuts. Entry is spicy and full-bodied; the midpalate displays a trace of vanillin that supports the more vibrant flavors of brine, salt, green vegetable and green pepper. Finishes clean, a touch smoky and delicately spiced. A classic añejo Tequila. Delicious.

Since 1962, Herradura has been proud to offer this delicious aged tequila. Barrelling for two years in oak (twice as long as suggested by the category standards) gives it both a deep amber color and complex taste of cooked agave and dried fruit.
